In 1904, the Canadian Bank of Commerce transferred teller Robert W. Service to the Yukon Territory. Soon, he was famous as the poet who chronicled the Klondike gold rush and the savage beauty of the frozen north. His verse tales of hard-bitten prospectors and sourdoughs make vivid, exciting reading, with such colorful characters as One-Eyed Mike, The Cremation of Sam McGee, Clancy of the Mounted Police, The Shooting of Dan McGrew, and, of course, the lady known as Lou. This book features 100 of Service's poems, from the famous Yukon Ballads to Bohemian Paris and the World War.
